Hubs and Kermit - Why I Shouldn't Leave Them Alone Together

  

 

This weekend I had a book signing and a conference. Friday night at the signing, hubs and kidlet brought me over and were going to go see the Muppets movie while I did my thing. Kidlet brought along his Kermit doll. And that may have been a mistake because my husband plus a muppet plus a camera phone are a bad combination. This is what I got texted to me throughout the signing.

Here's me being, yanno, professional and stuff (well, mostly):

Thanks to author Angi Morgan for the pic!

Here's what is popping up on my phone:
  

Hitchiking on the escalator

 

 

Well, okay, he does date a pig.

 

So yeah. Poor Kermie.

What's the funniest photo on your phone?

Master of the Island - download the FREE Prequel!

Today I have a special treat for you guys. I've been talking about Invitation to Eden this week (which, in my head, I'm now calling LOST with more sex and less polar bears), but now you get your first glimpse of the mysterious island and its Master. Lauren Hawkeye has the prequel for the series avaialble for free. I read it last night and it made me even more excited to get started writing my story for the series.

It will be up on the retailer sites soon if you prefer it in the format for your e-reader. But if you want to get a jump start, here's a PDF. 

About the Prequel: 

Master of the Island by Lauren Hawkeye- FREE PREQUEL (The Island, Prequel)

When his life takes a dark turn, billionaire Theodosius Vardalos purchases a deserted island in the Bermuda triangle. It’s accessible only by plane- the better, he thinks, to hide his scars from the rest of the world.
What Theo doesn’t know is that the island has an incredible secret, one that gives him hope… hope of future happiness, despite the horrible scars that make him a recluse. Hope to be had in the arms of a mysterious blonde he hasn’t yet met…

Click here to download your free book! Enjoy! And remember, the series will start releasing three complete novellas each month starting in April! (Mine wil be in August.)

Happy reading!

Book News! More Loving on the Edge heading your way!

Hello, Pike (photo purchased from Big Stock)

So I've been sitting on this news for a little while and couldn't wait to share it with y'all. Especially when many of you have been emailing me and asking me the questions:

Will there be more books in the series?

What heroes are going to get their own books?

Are we ever going to see so and so again?

Will NOT UNTIL YOU have a paperback edition?

Well, finally I can tell all. Because this was annouced in Publisher's Marketplace today:


Women's/Romance
NYT bestselling author Roni Loren's next two books in her Loving on the Edge series and the first book in a new contemporary erotic romance series, to Kate Seaver at Berkley Heat, in a good deal, in a three-book deal, for publication in 2015, by Sara Megibow of Nelson Literary Agency(World).

Yay!

So what does this all mean specifically? Well here goes. 

  • Yes, NOT UNTIL YOU, will be compiled into a complete edition and will be available in paperback and ebook in November. Thank you to everyone who bought the serial because that made it possible for the paperback edition to be greenlighted. So *hugs* to you all for making it happen. : )
  • There will be at least two more Loving on the Edge books after Colby's book, NOTHING BETWEEN US (which comes out in January)!
  • Book 7 will be...Pike (Foster's BFF from NOT UNTIL YOU)
  • Book 8 will be...Gibson and Sam (Kade's brother from NEED YOU TONIGHT and Tessa's BFF)
  • The new series concept is to be determined at this point, so more news when I have it.
  • Also, some minor characters will be getting short stories. More details on how that will work later. : )
  • AND in September of this year there will be a Loving on the Edge novella called FOREVER STARTS TONIGHT and it's going to be about *drumroll*... Jace, Evan, and Andre! So all of you who wanted more after MELT INTO YOU and had burning questions about what happened next, you'll get to see. :) 

 

And if I don't say it enough, I want to thank each and every one of you who read my books. You are the reason I get to keep writing these. I heart you all! 

*By the way, if you like the photo of Pike above, I've updated all the photos of the heroes on The Ranch page. Check it out. :) 

So are you as excited as I am? What hero were you most hoping would get his own book?

Because I Don't Punk Out on Promises...the NKOTB Fan Fic

 

Okay, so you know how you make those promises that you will do something IF because you know the IF is a longshot and you don't actually think you'll have to pay up? Well, yeah, so here I am. Sometime last year I made the promise that if I ever hit the New York Times Bestseller list, I would post some of the novel that I wrote at age 14--which is really just 55,000 words of NKOTB (and Jonathan Brandis--R.I.P.) fan fic. 

Well, this week, it happened! I didn't expect it, but when the NYT list came out, the RIDING DESIRE boxed set I'm in with thriteen other fantastic authors hit #24 on the Ebook list. So first, yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's a dream come true to be both a NYT and USA Today bestselling author now. HUGE dream. So thank you so much, readers, for buying it. *hugs*

 

Me realizing we made the NYT Bestseller list

Me realizing I promised my NKOTB fan fic

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But that also means it's time for me to pay the piper on this promise. Two pages of a kissing scene are posted today on the Smutketeers blog, where you can also see a few of the other authors airing their shames, including Eden Bradley's 80s hair, RG Alexander singing with a band, and a recording of Lauren Hawekeye when she was in a girl group. :) So click over there to check it out.

But I also know that it's not fair for me to only post two pages. So I'm posting a longer scene here. In it there is probably my first attempt at a makeout scene and Jordan gets a little too handsy. Bad Jordan. But Joe comes to the rescue! >.<  Yeah, this is going to be embarrassing.

Some things to note in these pages: 

  • I was 14 and was writing about kissing and such when I had no experience at all. I wouldn't be kissed for another 2 years. Also, this is when French kissing was still very scandalous a thought to my innocent Catholic school girl mind. ;)
  • The heroine is named Love because, yes, I was into subtlety with symbolism. *cough*
  • These are scanned documents that include handwritten edits I did back then.
  • Yes, I dotted my i's with stars because I was rad like that.
  • I actually bought the Writer's Market book that year because I totally planned on querying this. I eventually chickened out--thank God, though I'm sure a few agents would've enjoyed the giggle.
  • The Jonathan in this was actually Jonathan Brandis, not Jon of NKOTB.
  • It was in proper manuscript format because I was serious about this, yo. ; )
  • No, I didn't have a boyfriend at the time. Why do you ask? o.0

 All right, enough stalling, here we go. But first, here's the character sheet of who each character really was (you can see I REALLY deviated from the names on some of them *snort*). And here are the magazine pages I found in the binder for my character inspiration. (Click to enlarge)

If you made it through all nine pages I'm not sure if you're a sadist who enjoys my shame or a masochist for putting yourself through it, lol.

But you know what? I'm okay with it all because I made the NYT, baby!!!

Also, if you'd like to see how far I've (hopefully) come in my writing in 20 years, NEED YOU TONIGHT is out this week! And RIDING DESIRE is only on sale for 99 cents for another day, so if you haven't gotten it, grab it now. And FIFTY FIRST TIMES is still on sale for 1.99!

So what dirty/embarrassing laundry would you air in exchange for a dream coming true? Come on, don't leave me up here all alone. Tell me what's in your attic. ;)
